The End of The Internet
this mobile/pocket device simulates a situation when, for one or another reason, the world looses its internet inter-connectivity. the familiar 'infrastructure' of public wireless networks still remains working, but the actual website addresses and URLs become completely useless, all leading to just one webpage that remains functional, - "Welcome to The End of The Internet", it says.
'the-end-of-the-internet' is a situationist intervention and disruption of internet-dependent social environment. searching for a replacement for the internet starts with a simulation of its extinction.
the device is spoofing/faking any wireless network that you try connecting to. the tactic is rather simple - every time you open your laptop it searches for its 'home' network by sending out so called 'beacons' with the name of that network. 'the-end-of-the-internet' device captures those 'beacons' and creates matching networks on the fly. most modern computer operating systems are vulnerable to this trick and connect to the 'fake' wireless network immediately.
